What's a Ticket Home Award?
Simply put, a Ticket Home is our promise to help new military members pay travel expenses for a visit home after arriving at their first permanent duty station.
Typically, a Ticket Home award is worth $500 if you are coming home from somewhere in the US, and up to $1,000 if you are coming home from an overseas base.
We review applications and give Ticket Home awards monthly. The number of awards we are able to give depends on our fundraising. Application deadlines and selection dates are listed below.
Please be advised that due to the high volume of applications we receive and our limited funding, the Foundation is able to provide awards for a small percentage of applicants. Recipients of these awards will be notified in accordance with the below schedule.
Those selected to receive a Ticket Home Award will be notified by email. Results will also be posted on our website in Events and News.
